Need to make a "Jeep" List...
My Birthday isn't until November, but I'd like to get a list :rtft: going now, My moms going shopping early. I figured she will spend a bit since i will be 21 and all.
I pretty much just want is stuff for the Jeep. Well I need some suggestions as what to ask for. I have a 2004 X.

What are some good things to have on/in your jeep.

I'd like to go light off roading once I get some time. I don't plan on lifting it, but do plan on going with a 31" tire once the stock GSA's bite the dust.

I have a dog and wanted to get some of the raingler nets,any one got em and what do you think?

Raingler products work well. I just have the net for keeping storage down but it works great.

For mild wheelin I'd work on some mild recovery gear:

Tow Strap
Fire Extinguisher
Maybe a Winch
Nice AT's
Extra lighting if you plan night wheelin trips

THose are some things I would look at for mild wheelin.JMHO

I have the Raingler nets and I love them. They work great. As for good stuff for the jeep, Doghouse pretty much covered the basics. You should get some good towhooks for the front and rear, too. Tow hooks, a tow strap, and a fire extinguisher are must have items. :thumbsup:

a hi-lift

some rock sliders and tires
im too cheap to buy a full size spare.

I know you said you're not going to do a lot of offroading, but if you're going to get tow hooks and recovery straps (which I highly recommend), you need to get a little shovel that folds up and fits under your seat. If you're pulling someone out or getting yourself out, it helps a ton to be able to clear a pathway for your tires to get out.

ps-don't throw away your list after your birthday. If you don't get everything on your list, give the remaining items to Santa at the mall. :D

heres another how about a harley mirror, may need it when going door less. $20

shebas04TJ 09-19-2004 01:47 PM

Thanks everyone. I'll be adding that to the jeep list. Here starts the begining of "Project Green"

One more question would factory bumper lights be a good lights for off roading. I have seen jeeps around here drive with them on, and others just use them with no headlights on? What are they supposed to be used for?

would it be a good idea to get them or if not where would i find some
SMALL off road lights, and where is the best place to have them on the jeep?

Hey Limecolbyjack like the jeep :wave:

as far as "the best place" for off-road lights, i'm not sure that this has been really covered :D, but I like them to be wide angle lights on the bumper, toward the outside, like the factory lights, as well as some narrow angle beams toward the middle, that way, with your headlights on high-beam, you have pretty broad coverage.

get covers for 'em too.

I'd also add supplementary back-up lights... especially with a tinted back window.


shebas04TJ 09-19-2004 02:15 PM

Got any pics lonejeeper?

LoneJeeper 09-19-2004 02:35 PM

negative... sorry.

I've got equipment in the way for the narrow set. I've got factory foglights and have noticed a lack of middle range centered light. I'm leaning toward a new bumper with a hoop to mount them on....


shebas04TJ 09-19-2004 02:47 PM

So wide angle lights on the bumper like the factory lights.

Narrow angle beams toward the middle, should these go on the bumper too?

The back up light sounds like a good idea.

I'd like them to be on the smaller side If someone looks at my jeep they don't just see a bunch of lights.

Where did you get them at?

LoneJeeper 09-19-2004 03:23 PM

the bumper is a pretty good place for them, some people mount them on a metal frame cover.

harbor frieght has a bunch of smaller rectangular lights for pretty cheap, so does E-Bay....

I had a thread here awhile ago concerning backup lights.
